The difference between fruit wolfberry and dry wolfberry

The fresh fruit of Lycium barbarum is the fruit of Lycium barbarum, a plant of the Solanaceae family. Lycium barbarum is a small deciduous shrub belonging to the genus Lycium barbarum of the Solanaceae family. It is a medicinal and economical plant.

The fresh fruit of Lycium barbarum is the fruit of the Solanaceae plant Lycium barbarum. Lycium barbarum is a small deciduous shrub of the Solanaceae Lycium genus. It is a medicinal and economical plant. Its mature and dry fruits are called Lycium barbarum [1]. The fresh wolfberry fruit is the fruit of the solanaceous plant Ningxia wolfberry.

It was first published in “Shen Nong’s Materia Medica” and was listed as top grade. With the deepening of research, people found that the vitamin C content in this seemingly humble fruit is 40 times that of apples, 28 times that of pears, and 6 times that of fresh peaches. Vitamin C content is higher than oranges, β-carotene content is higher than carrots, and iron content is higher than steaks.

  1. What is fruit wolfberry? What is dry wolfberry?

1 Fruit wolfberry is the wolfberry that can be eaten as a fruit, and has the first characteristic of fruit—palatability.

  2 Fresh wolfberry is the fresh fruit of medicinal wolfberry.

  • Wolfberry can be subdivided into medicinal and edible from the consumption behavior. Fruit wolfberry is mainly used for food, and its medicinal function is low; wolfberry such as Ningqi No. 1 is mainly used for medicinal purposes, and it will be consumed after excessive consumption Cause side effects.
  • dry wolfberry is a variety of wolfberry that can be eaten as a fruit selected according to consumer demand; fresh wolfberry is a fresh fruit of the medicinal wolfberry variety.

Fourth, edible wolfberry is mainly fresh; medicinal wolfberry is mainly dried.

  1. Edible wolfberry is mainly palatability; medicinal wolfberry is mainly medicinal ingredients.

In terms of planting area, edible wolfberry is mainly used in Qinghai, Xinjiang, Gansu, and parts of Inner Mongolia; medicinal wolfberry is mainly used in parts of Ningxia and Gansu.

The shelf life of fresh wolfberry fruit is extremely short, generally only about 2 to 3 days, so the first problem encountered in deep processing is the problem of dehydration and quality preservation. At present, the planting area of ​​wolfberry in Ningxia in my country is more than 500,000 mu. However, the dehydration and storage technology of wolfberry in Ningxia is backward. More than 90% of wolfberry is dried and processed by natural drying method. Due to weather and other reasons, the annual loss is about 300 yuan/mu. In the days when it was overcast and rainy, the loss per mu exceeded 1,000 yuan, for which modern wolfberry drying equipment came into being.

Wolfberry drying method

  1. The oven is dry. Stove drying is also a traditional drying method, which is to build a stove on the ground, light a fire at the bottom of the stove, and spread the fresh fruits in the stove for drying. After drying at 40℃-45℃ for 24-36h, some wrinkles appear; then drying at 45℃~50℃ for 36-48h, all shrinkage wrinkles appear and the volume is significantly reduced;

Finally, it can be dried out after drying for about 24 hours at a temperature of 50℃-55℃. This method has low cost, large amount of one-time drying, but the temperature is not easy to control, uneven drying, long drying time, high energy consumption, and poor product quality. To

  1. Hot air drying. Hot air drying is a method of drying wolfberries using hot air drying machines. Use a hot air stove to heat the air, and use a fan to send it into the oven to contact the fresh fruit to achieve heating and drying. To
  2. Far infrared drying. Far-infrared drying is a new method under research and development. This method has low cost, large processing capacity, and easy-to-operate technology. It can be used for drying wolfberry. The drying equipment can be automated, but the active ingredient loss is relatively large. The far-infrared dryer is that after the far-infrared radiation element emits far-infrared, it is absorbed by the fruit and directly converted into heat energy to achieve drying.
